Bulwer Mountain Shelter #2 is outside the Maloti-Drakensberg Park and is located in Bulwer.

Interpretation by Celeste Rossouw: An eland is depicted here apparently ‘entering’ a curtain of natural mineral deposits on the parent rock. San rock paintings sometimes used natural features in this way with people and animals entering or coming out of a crack, hole, mineral deposit or any other physical feature on the cave wall. It can be explained as a way of illustrating how shamans or animals entered or came from the spirit world where they could receive power to make rain, heal the sick or control game animals.
